Create. Compose. Communicate.

Welcome to the KU Writing Center

Writers need feedback, sounding boards, and other people to coach them while they compose. That's where the KU Writing Center comes in. It's a place for productive talk about writing, with trained peer consultants to help you brainstorm, draft, and revise your projects. View our Mission and Diversity Statements, or read our 2015-2016 Annual Report.

On October 12, KU Writing Center turned 18 years old. "We're legal!" declares Nadine Alzubbi, office assistant.
